South Portland Democratic Committee Resolution Calls For Bush/Cheney Impeachment

The South Portland Democratic City Committee has passed a resolution calling for the impeachment of President George W. Bush and Vice President Richard B. Cheney.

The impeachment resolution urges members of Congress to hold the President and Vice-President accountable for their actions, by taking all necessary steps to ensure a complete investigation into abuses of power, and carrying the legal process through to its conclusion in an act of impeachment. The Committee cites a wide range of unlawful acts, and also charges that Bush and Cheney have betrayed their oaths to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America, and of committing high crimes and misdemeanors warranting impeachment.

The document calls on Democratic City Committee Chair Richard Rottkov to sign a copy of the resolution and send it directly to the United States Congress. The Committee will also share the resolution with other Democratic Party organizations.

Rottkov called the resolution ‘a statement of conscience’ and said that the committee doesn’t expect a Republican-controlled Congress to consider Articles of Impeachment - no matter how great the merits of the resolution may be. He said that it was time for the committee, and patriotic Americans everywhere, to take a stand against Bush and Cheney’s ‘flagrant abuse of power.’
